I'm Glad

that I have feet and I can walk,

that we have lots of warm blankets,

that it is staying light now until 6 PM,

that we are safe,

that we have beds and nighttime,

that we can talk to each other,

that we have running water and electricity.

For all this and so much more, I am really glad.

And I'm glad I have you my blog family and friends.

Sometimes you just need to say it! Huh?

Are you glad?

Love, Rachel

Yes, I'm glad - for so many things! I'm glad you're my sister, too!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!

Love, Esther

I'm glad I have a home and a car and a family I love and that loves me, sugar. My blessings are too numerous to count. I am blessed!

FrancisMoore said...

Yes, and sometimes I complain that I don't have more. I want to be grateful with what God has given me.

Donnie said...

Yes, I'm thankful for all those things too, and so much more. Importantly...that you are my sister and that I have all the family that I do.
Have a wonderful day,
Love you, Donnie

What a wonderful post. Yes, we do just have to remind ourselves how wonderful life can be...I take so many things for granted.
p.s. thanks for stopping by my blog! The studio is the same size. I think it looks larger because of the layout of the tiles and that the walls and ceiling are both painted white. In the before pictures the floor was too dark, the walls were dark too, so it made the room feel smaller.

I am grateful for so many things but most of all at my age I am thankful for my health and physical energy. I thank the Lord each day for my blessings.

I'm glad I have you too Rachel. There are so many things I'm thanking God for. I see His hand in my life when I look back over this past year. Have a blessed weekend. Kathi ps Thank you for all of your encouraging notes lately. I'm on Facebook are you?
